Why campaigns fail – and what to do about it (12, 14, 19, 21 March)

The Next Level Of Campaigning. Why campaigns failed, fail, and how they will not fail again.

Responding to time running out for achieving urgent and ultimately needed change, locally and worldwide, environmentally, politically, socially.

Most campaigns for change (since the 1960s) were based on experience, creativity and community. In spite of this, they have sometimes won specific gains but have failed to cause the wider changes desired.

After having thoroughly reviewed many campaigns, actions, and projects from the 1960s up to 2019, their successes and failures – here’s a summary of the most common mistakes, the reasons, and a surprisingly simple mind-map that can make campaigning look fairly different in set up, practice, and success in causing effective change.

This is a talk of 30 min – 45 min, followed by open time for discussion, questions, responses. Ideally leaving you with something to take home on the day.
